Ansible for Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workshop

June 24, 20209:00 AM - 4:00 PM(GMT-04:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)

Our instructor-led Ansible for Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® virtual hands-on workshop is intended for people who want to learn the basics of Ansible Automation including Ansible Tower, understand how they work and how they can be used to automate basic tasks. In addition, the instructor will provide information on differentiation between the upstream project and the product offering from Red Hat.

Join this event if you’ve never tried Red Hat Ansible® Automation.


What is Ansible, how does it work in the most basic form on the command line - and where does Ansible Tower fit it?

This workshop teaches the basic bits you need to start using Ansible Automation on your own. In the second half we will focus on Ansible Tower and show where it fits in - and when and why you absolutely need it when you automate more and more.
